(Job 26:8-10 KJV).
"He bindeth
(Compresses) up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them. He holdeth (Fastens) back the face of his throne, (Covering i.e. atmosphere or air) and spreadeth his cloud upon it. He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day (Warm) and night (cool) come to an end."

I want to address the word bindeth or bind in the Hebrew and Chaldee language; the word used was “Tsarar” taken from the Strong’s Concordance #6867 meaning to cramp, or compress, condense or narrow. The reason for this clarification is because once we understand what was said or intended we better recognize what we read.

Without clouds, it would not rain. Clouds are made up of water droplets formed when
warm; (Day) moist air rises high into the sky and cools (as night is cooler from day). That water vapour in it condenses and forms what will become raindrops. These droplets move around in the cloud and bang into each other. As they do this, they increase in size until they are heavy enough to fall from the cloud. (and fall to the earth bringing the cycle to an end).
Rain clouds usually have particular characteristics. They are often large, grey clouds and appear dark because they are so large and full of water that sunlight cannot get through them. The heaviest rain falls from the deepest, darkest clouds which are high enough for the raindrops to develop properly
